Celebrate Freedom Every Chance You Get
Every country and ethnic group has special holidays they celebrate. Being the mother-in-law of a great guy from Colombia, South America, gives me a chance to enjoy those times with him, family and friends.
This past weekend, despite the heat, local Colombians observed their Independence Day with great gusto in a Kirkwood park. The occasion denotes their independence from Spain on July 20, 1810.
We arrived in the morning before the heat got too oppressive and had an early lunch. Dancers, musicians, food and craft sellers seemed to ignore the heat, despite being from a country, where temperatures are far more moderate year round.
